[Despite having been labeled a male] I’ve always thought of myself as less of a guy. I would play with different toys when I was younger, I always seemed to gravitate more toward female, and I’ve never been friends with many guys. So later on, after Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn Jenner, I started thinking like, “Hey maybe that’s me.” I finally came out on Thanksgiving Day of 2016. It was interesting. My father wasn’t supportive but my mother has been backing me the whole time. I definitely want to try and get surgery. If I can, I am going to start taking hormones when I am 18.
[I tell people] don’t be afraid to be yourself. We definitely have to change our mindsets on certain things. Someone shouldn’t have to be afraid to come out.
